Rainbow Six Extraction minimum & recommended requirements

Luckily, you don’t need a top-of-the-line gaming rig to run Rainbow Six Extraction at its minimum settings, as 1080p Low only requires an Intel i5-4460 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 4GB.

The game will likely still look absolutely fine on low, but if you want to improve how the game looks, you’ll want to run it at least the high 1080p requirements. For those with high-powered rigs, you can also play at 1440p or 4k.

You can check out all the requirements below.
